NY Times Blasts French “Truth Terrorist” Dieudonné

The terrifying truth about the NY Times – and the rest of the mainstream media

The truth can be terrifying.

 

by Kevin Barrett

 

Explain to an average American that 9/11 was an inside job, and you can almost smell the fear.

Those of us committed to telling the most inconvenient truths are terrorists – truth terrorists. We do not shrink from the reality that our message will be greeted with fear.

But, unlike regular terrorists, our ultimate mission is to defuse the fear, not spread it. I try to use humor, outrage, passion, creativity, empathy, emanations of inner peace, and other such approaches to help people get past the fear that 9/11 was designed to inspire.

One of our greatest “truth terrorists” is the French comedian Dieudonné. He brilliantly conveys the deepest, ugliest truths, the ones that the New York Times considers unfit to print:

*That Zionism is genocidal lunacy, and the whole Western discourse on Zionism is a cascading avalanche of big and bigger lies;

*That the West is becoming a profoundly decadent, completely unfree, Orwellian nightmare of a culture that appears on the verge of total collapse;

*That the USA, with its culture of insane greed, genocidal extermination of “natives,” obsequious enslavement to Zionism, mindlessly brutal warmongering combined with almost unimaginable cowardice, and unbearable shallowness, superficiality, and mediocrity, is leading the planet straight to hell.

You don’t have to be an Israel-hating, America hating Frenchman to concede these points. Paul Craig Roberts, who wrote editorials for the Wall St. Journal until he started telling inconvenient truths, says pretty much the same thing in his latest op-ed:

“The hubris in Washington, fed daily by the crazed neocons, despite extraordinary failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, has now targeted formidable powers-–Russia and China. The world has never in its entire history witnessed such idiocy.

“The psychopaths, sociopaths, and morons who prevail in Washington are leading the world to destruction.

‘The criminally insane government in Washington, regardless whether Democrat or Republican, regardless of the outcome of the next election, is the greatest threat to life on earth that has ever existed.”

Here is Dieudonné’s recent NY Times interview (in French):

And here is the NY Times lame attempt at character assassination (in  English):

    Seems that the NYT is on its way to expend its hasbara war to France. Maïa de la Baume’s FREE twisted interpretation of her Dieudonné’s “interview” is a Christal clear example of the poor shape journalism, NYT style, has become.

    It made me think about how Helen Thomas was framed and throw to the wolves.

    Dieudonné is damn right when he says in the (NYT’s) interview: “…Négocier avec ses morts, ça devient obscène…” Dr Norman Finkelstein hinted at the same obscenity when he wrote “The industry of the Holocaust”.

    I would suggest to Jason to read Dr Shlomo Sand’s book: “The Invention of The Jewish People” or at least have a look at the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWgHvLhgWA0.

    The CRIFF and the LICRA have done every trick in their book to MUZZLE Dieudonné and stop him from telling many truths, his way, as a comedian, continuing the tradition led down by the deceased (some think assassinated) Coluche. He was even physically assaulted by Zionists, in Martinique or Guadeloupe, a year ago… France is the ONLY country in Europe that has an officially registered “ANTI ZIONISM PARTY”.

    Jason; Were you one of the Dancing Israelis on 9-11? You were, weren’t you? I knew it…You were probably the one holding the cigarette lighter in front of the WTC and giggling like a schoolgirl…at least you got a good picture for the folks back home..

      The hardest concept for an anti-Semite to understand: Israel exists

      The second hardest concept for an anti-Semite to understand: Those who believe Israel has no right to exist forfeit the right to criticize her because they only wish to destroy her.

    • The Rahnameh  July 5, 2012 at 5:02 pm

      The hardest part for a non-Semite to understand: no one can give two Fs about your hollow complaints that people are anti-Semitic. Go to a site for idiots who do not know you are hasbara.

      Learn English, what the term means before you exploit it, and try again. You can’t scapegoat Judaism for Israel’s crimes, Jason. Who died and made you King Jew? Bibi is still alive and he claims that title.

      Yeah Jason, maybe your bosses in Herzlya will spring for a new ‘Yiddish to English’ dictionary for you, in order to bring you up to speed. Hopefully it will include an appendage that contains American dialect and colloquialisms of the late 20th century.

    The Int Red Cross numbered the dead in the German work camps at 275,000 and change…many not Jews…the camps; complete with pools and hosp..How can the lack of any “holocaust” possibly be bad news? Well, when some supremacist Jew calls someone a “holohoax denier” what he’s really saying is: That truthseeking person is blowing our cover and denying us the “right” to use our hoax to justify manipulating nations to allow us to rob, steal and murder and ethnically cleanse the Holy Land…And, of course, this takes attention away fm the Jew-run gulags of the USSR in which tens of millions of Christians were murdered…Never forget the real holocaust: the holocaust of Christians in WW I and II, in Armenia and in the USSR and the rest of E. Europe by people like Beria and Kaganovich!

    Gordon
    Thank you for paying attention to my comment.I think I agree with you.Well I try to make a difference between a “jew” and a “zionist”.It’s not always easy.For instance I would have had to say “zionist organisations” and not “jewish”.In France one percent of the population is jewish.These organisations pretend to represent that percentage.In fact they represent only 40 percent of the one percent.It means that 60 percent of the jews think not to be concerned and even against the political views of these so-called leaders.For example Bernard Henry Levy.On the contrary the musician-writer Gilad Atzmon is becoming popular and respected partly because of his latest book;”The wandering who?” and that even in the jewish community.Those among the jews who are honest need men like him.To finish I would say I don’t care about Abe Foxman.

  5. Madelon  July 3, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Dieudonné started his career in the late 80’s with a partner named Elie Seimoun.Elie is jewish.They were very popular and funny.From the very moment Dieudo(as we call him here in France)criticized Israel policies against the palestinian people all the mainstream medias treated him an antisemite.It’s a non-sense.He’s not an antisemite.You Americans have the AIPAC and the ANTI-DEFAMATION-LEAGUE.We have the CRIFF and the LICRA jewish organisations working for the same goal.The medias are in their hands politicians as well.In the New-York-Times article it is said that Dieudo is getting to the end of his career.It’s a lie among many other lies.Without any promotion the shows are sold out.Dieudo is still very popular and many people see him like the new “Liberty-Equality-Fraternity”symbol.Thank’s to Kevin Barrett.

      As a “jew” i ran by family tree back into the 1500s on that side, to 963 with gaps on the Scottish side. One of my friends, a “Jewish” member of the Bush administration, a name you would know, did the same.

      He discovered he was 100% German and his family lied about Jewish ancestry for some reason.

      As for my own family, we trace through Switzerland, Vienna and into the Russian steppes.

      Geneitically, we are identical to Norwegians.

      Other Jews should do the same.

      None of us have one drop of Semite blood, we are all from, originally, Vandal and Visigoth tribal roots.

      Let me make that clear…ain’t nobody been south of the Caucauses, nobody been to the Middle East, ain’t no Semites, which could make me Palestinian or Ethopian.
      Semites are a language group, not a friggin race. Get a damned education and stop paying attention to Abe Foxman who, as far as I can judge, is a Polish Catholic.

      Check on that. All this talk is racism and hatespeech.

      Ironically, the Chief Rabbi of Rome converted after witnessing the efforts of Pius XII during the war…Now the Jews repay him by calling him “Hitler’s Pope”..You’re right, Madagascar would make a better “homeland” for the Khazars than Palestine…

    • Jason  July 4, 2012 at 10:04 am

      Same tired old lies, over and over again.

      Though it’s really no surprise: it’s the only way to support your bigoted and anti-Semitic views.

    • Charlotte NC Bill  July 4, 2012 at 12:08 pm

      Here’s a deal: I’ll lighten-up when you stop killing people….and getting others to do your killing for you..Sound good, you gentile hater? And, by the way, you’re not a semite…You’re a Khazar…You fit in..in a lot of places but not Palestine and when you attack Iran they’re going to waste your shitty little country that you manufactured fm the holohoax, an uninvited invasion, terrorism ( which you still practice…King David hotel..USS Liberty..9-11 ) massacres, ethnic cleansing and land theft….But, don’t worry, you’re dream of putting truth-tellers in jail has come true in a lot of countries..Maybe America’s next…”Lies” you should know..you’re spiritual brethren speak nothing but..

      You’re the anti-Semite. Get a dictionary and learn what the term means. Your picture is under it. Idiot.

      Why do Zionists scapegoat Judaism and try to get Jews slaughtered with their political fundamentalism, Jason? You’re an anti-Semite.

      Jason, go to Hell..and take Talmudia with you..you SOB!

  6. James Robertson  July 1, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Thank you Kevin. The NYT article was absolutely bizarre. Left me thinking why did they bother? I don’t even think that the point was even to write a hit piece against Dieudonne but rather to bolster the utterly dishonest ADL narrative of Jews under constant threat from viicous ant- semites. To whatever extent Jews have been victimised in the pastit was totally wrong. Now all that genuine history of persecution has become a cynical, disgusting industry that seeks to harvest the Jewish suffering of the past and use it to help with the current day oppression/scapegoating of Muslims and Arabs. Anyone can love the scapegoat once the fever has passed. When we simply stop persecuting one group only to move onto the persecution of another group we haven’t really changed or improved at all. All exceptionalism is a lie when applied to large human groups. People are people.

  7. Detlef Reimers  July 1, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Thanks Mr. Barett for this article, sometimes – even in servere and bad times – we all need some kind of “survival humor”. This of course should never be misinterpreted as talking bullshit or simply making silly or simply sarcastic jokes about the worse situation, we live in.

    Mr. Dieudonné knows, how to talk to people and he shurely makes his point in this very opening interview (By the way, did you realize the enerving hammering noise in the background? That’s Paris life!).

    I enjoyed to listen – it’s like fresh air, and we need more of this, for shure.

  8. Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel  July 1, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Kevin, you are so right! But how about “fessing up” to one of the greatest lies of all – the one that terrifies the entire world, not just America – the so-called “Holocaust”?

    Dieudonné has fearlessly tackled that monster. He has even appeared with the “Dean of European Holocaust Revisionism”, Dr. Robert Faurisson, on stage in a skit poking fun at the gullible masses.

    I feel honored to have been accepted as one of Veterans Today columnists. I have made many valuable friends, but I am still waiting for writers I otherwise greatly respect to show some spine and gumption.

    • Jason  July 1, 2012 at 2:07 pm

      How can anyone take seriously the comments of a Holocaust denying anti-Semite.

      Though I find your comments disgusting, I feel sorrow and compassion for you.

      I hope you get help.

    • Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel  July 1, 2012 at 4:03 pm

      Jason WHO ?

    • Charlotte NC Bill  July 2, 2012 at 2:23 am

      The Holohoax has been such a useful tool they can’t give it up-all evidence notwithstanding..

    • Charlotte NC Bill  July 2, 2012 at 2:27 am

      He’s just a nasty Jew supremacist who calls anyone who doesn’t believe the msm/academia lies an “anti-semite”..

    • Jason  July 4, 2012 at 10:05 am

      Lighten up Charlotte.

    • lawrencedickerson  July 2, 2012 at 8:19 pm

      Jason,

      Though you may disagree with Kevin you do so through biased eyes and ears.You are a product of Jewish propaganda that has filled the average Jew with hate and suspicion.How can anyone take seriously the comments of a Holocaust lying Semite wannabe.The Holocaust industry is a 100 billion dollar a year scam with the money not going to the victims but into the Israel state coffers and the bank accounts of Zionist criminals.

      The world is beginning to wake up and see how the Holocaust was programmed into being the 2nd biggest hoax of the century,the first being the scam that allowed Israel to be declared a home to the Jews at the cost of a genocide and theft of properties of the Palestinian peoples.

      There is an article in today’s VT,”How the Israel lobby erodes US sovereignty”,where US Senator Mark Kirk sponsored a bill that was written in Israel by an Israeli.To me that is treasonous.No foreign power has the right to dictate US law.

    Much respect to you Mr Barrett and all at VT. Our only hope is that the more you publish articles like this the more sheeple will wake up. For the sake of all humanity.
